I began having seizures after my daughter was born. I had a total of 4 grand mals before I was put on keppra. MRI, CT, and EEG tests were clear. Went seizure free for 7 months...then had a breakthrough seizure last week! I feel like something is wrong but can't get a diagnosis. Anyone else have a similar situation or know what could be provoking them???

  • I would strongly advise you to dismiss Blaze's comments to you. None of the 'disorders' she espouses have any basis in medical fact and she posts them to everyone, just about every thread, no matter what the symptoms of the poster. She is well-known around here for doing this. I would head straight to my Neurologist if I were you. This isn't something you can fix on your own. If your EEG's to this point have been clear.....diagnosing seizures in the absence of an epileptic disorder can be difficult. Sometimes it is just a matter of getting the right meds and the right dosages, which can change over time. You are due for a visit to your Neurologist.

  • Thanks. That is exactly where I'm headed...the only problem is my nero wasn't keeping track of my meds so that is why I feel like I had the relapse after 7 months. Think I'm going to change hospitals and get a fresh perspective. Thanks again~

  • sorry...didn't see the post from ealier. As a matter of fact all my seizures affect the left side of my face and I lose all sensation and muscle control on that side!? It's the last thing I remember before losing conciousness...

  • Harmonium, you've been reported for causing trouble on the forum again. You do not own this forum and obviously have not read any of links I posted or you would see that EHS does have medical merit - in other countries, and it's gaining merit in the US, too.Blaze, you are welcome to report me-- but I did nothing wrong. I stated my opinion (not only do the scientific facts back up my opinion, but it is one shared by many, many of the regular posters around here). I am not trying to 'own' this forum. I am however, appalled by your blatant disregard for others around here, claiming to almost every single thread that you have the exact same symptoms and are caused by EHS. It's irresponsible of you to do so, in my opinion. I have read completely all you have linked to; I just think it's malarkey (totally unsubstantiated by the medical community). It's my opinion, and I'm allowed to have it and to express it, just like you.

Anyone else have a similar situation or know what could be provoking them???Did you have gestational diabetes in your pregnacy? Are you a diabetic?Any diet changes? Have you been eating protein or have you cut back on protein in your diet after the birth?
